I think the most talented people are often the most depressed.
I'd agree with you and say that many of those talented souls also have a great sense of humor.
Oh thank you!!
True in some cases. They hide behind it to not show weakness.
A man goes to see a doctor. Complains that he's depressed. That he doesn't enjoy life, doesn't have fun doing the things he used to do, just stays in bed all day and mopes.<br />
The doctor says, "The great clown Pagliacci is in town. He's the funniest man in the world. Go see him. He will make you laugh."<br />
The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor," he says. "I *am* Pagliacci."
I think depression, despair, gives you a form of freedom that is useful in humour, but we can still be funny without being suicidal.
i always thought this must be the case....i mean, look at robin williams. in addition, how much would it SUCK to reduce the magic of hilarity to an algorithm?
I think that is very likely but not a prerequisite to severe depression.
Apparently people who dress up as clowns( circus's etc)... are usually very depressed people.
Not necessarily it means dear doctor Eve..!!<br />
Not all funniest are depressed unless they wanna fall into those trap..lol
well then I should have been hilarious, you think people laugh when I'm not looking?
Not believing this one.
